Pete David Louden's answer A notorized agreement is not the same as an order of the court. Your attorney will prepare your agreement in the form of a court order, present to the court for approval, and then file.
Opal Phiona Lee's answer Alimony is based on the recipient proving that he/she has the need and that the obligor has the ability to pay. Factors also include length of marriage and marriage contribution. More facts are necessary to determine whether you are eligible for alimony. As for visitation and child support, it is important to note that time sharing cannot be used as leverage to receive child support - therefore, a parent should not be denied timeshare because he/she is not paying child support. With that said,...
Rand Scott Lieber's answer In general the law in Florida is that child support is recalculated as each child emancipates. If the two of you do not agree as to what the language means then your remedy is to return to court for the judge to decide. Same with the life insurance. If he does not agree to pay for his own as ordered then you must return to court.
Deborah Annette Carroll's answer You may qualify for temporary alimony if you can show you have a need for it and he has the ability to pay. For other forms of alimony such as durational or permanent, it will depend on many other factors including the length of your marriage and your need for alimony and his ability to pay also factor in. However, you are able to use his infidelity as grounds when requesting alimony. Additionally, you may be entitled to recoup money if he used marital funds to support the affair.
Timothy Denison's answer This is such a complex question with so many variables that it is impossible to properly answer here. It depends on whose name and how assets and liabilities are held as to what the proper action. Each can file separately if necessary, but generally speaking both parties are best served by filing a joint bankruptcy before the divorce. You need to get you parents to a competent bankruptcy attorney who can completely analyze their financial situation and advise them what to do and how and when...
Angelina Bradley's answer As a general rule, attorneys are conservative about nosing in on another attorney’s relationship with his client.
That said, I would review your retainer agreement. If you’re in a flare rate agreement, there may be things that you want your attorney to do that he has not contracted to do. If he is contracted to do those things, be direct. Share your concerns with your attorney. Explain what you want to have happen. If you’re still not happy, then I would consider finding another...
Mark Oakley's answer Yes. They can review the docket online, and they can go the the courthouse to look at the court file, review whatever has been filed, and make copies. If you signed and filed a separation and property settlement agreement as part of the divorce, you should ask your lawyer to have that document removed from the public file and sealed. Those agreements often contain highly sensitive financial and personal data that courts will place out of the public eye. The rest of the case file is public...
Sharon R. Moss' answer In Virginia adultery is still a crime, so your husband would have the right to assert his 5th amendment privilege against self-incrimination. A judge could not make him state whether or not he committed adultery.
Melissa Averett's answer you are posting this in a North Carolina forum. You need to repost it in a New Jersey for him so that New Jersey lawyers can answer the question. only attorneys licensed in New Jersey can answer a question regarding New Jersey Law
Andy Cook's answer This is a broad question, but I would start off with whether you are still living together and whether there have been any allegations of, or actual incidents of, domestic violence. If you are not living together, who are the kids primarily with and who is the high earner? Have you or your spouse or both of you lived in your county for at least three months and California for at least six months? Did you have a prenuptial agreement?
Spousal support is at play if there is a serious...
Lillian J. LaRosa's answer They should try to meet individually with 2 different attorneys in Bristol County due to a potential conflict of interest between them which can exist whether they think so or not.
Ellaretha Coleman's answer If the safety of the children is at issue, it may be appropriate to request a psychological evaluation of your husband in the divorce case. You should speak with an attorney to discuss your options.
Anthony Marvin Avery's answer It is probably impossible to Annul the alleged Marriage. But you should check to see if they were actually married, that is make her produce a Marriage Certificate. If there is substantial property, you may wish to file for a Probate Administration. As the Surviving Spouse, she will be entitled to at least a third of the Estate and a year's support. If there is real property, you may wish to file for a Partition to cash out your child's share (one-half or less)
